A Minneapolis mother tried to mail a 4 month old puppy via Priority Mail to Georgia for her son’s 11th birthday. Yep, you heard me right. She tried to mail a puppy through the mail in a cardboard box with no food, water or air holes. When I saw the story, I couldn’t believe my eyes or ears. The puppy moved inside the box, which caused the box to fall. The worker picked up the box and heard panting. She called her manager who instructed her to open the box, and there was this adorable puppy named Guess.
How in the hell did she think this puppy would survive? The trip from Minneapolis to Georgia is 2 days. When I see or read stories such as this, I ask if people are really that stupid. Well, I saw her with my own eyes and yes there are really people this stupid. She was smacking gum and walking out of an animal cruelty hearing as if she didn’t have a care in the world. She even tried to blame her stupidity on UPS. She told the officer that UPS didn’t have a list of what could be mailed or what couldn’t. Bitch, would you mail a human being in the mail? I mean really. The worker asked her if there was anything perishables, liquid, hazardous, etc., you know the standard questions, and her response was no. She told the worker the box contained a toy robot.
Once her plan fell apart, she demanded a refund and she even tried to get the puppy back. Oh yes she did! Thank goodness, her request was denied. She is now facing animal cruelty charges and must pay $15.00 per day for boarding fees for the dog. If she is unable to pay, the dog will be put up for adoption. I wonder why she doesn’t have custody of her son! I think her son and her puppy are better off without her in their life.
I’m so glad the story had a happy ending. It could have ended up being a tragedy on the evening news.
